Subject: Preachy, but only at the end
A good film, well done, and yes it's preachy, but the story is very well executed. Some hard to believe, even for it's time, but it's a good watch.
Acting very good, production and sets also very good. I recommend this film, and give it a four. (You gotta love the cafe cook's role.)

The movie can seem dated with its preachy context but it is a great movie with good actors and many parents could take a tip from it today!

Subject: Loving Mary Beth Huges...
Okay, there I've said it again ! Mary Beth Hughes, like Thelma Todd, and, Phyllis Brooks was a hard-working, underrated actress.

She was always cool, had lips to die for, and played the sometimes-brassy blonde with a sometimes-heart-of-gold. I loved her, and the other two listed above, in almost anything they did. They were ALWAYS watchable.

This PRC flick, done during the Second World War, WAS a "morality play", and as such, many will think it dated, stodgy, boring, etc., but when put in context of the perilous time-period we were living in, I understand why it was filmed.

Bad lighting, bad sets, good acting on the part of the three principals, Mary Beth, Jimmy, and, the Bad Dude Blake.

I'm only giving it a Two Star rating, because of the poor production...Mary Beth gets a Four, she NEVER disappoints !
